You are doing practicum with a classroom teacher. One day
the teacher asks you to sign off on a financial document for her. You think this is odd but sign off on it anyway. Which principle helps the professional educator demonstrate responsibility to oneself as an ethical professional?
-Monitoring and maintaining sound mental, physical, and emotional health necessary to perform duties and services of any professional assignment; and taking appropriate measures when personal or health-related issues may interfere with work-related duties.
-Holding oneself responsible for ethical conduct.
-Acknowledging that lack of awareness, knowledge, or understanding of the Code is not, in itself, a defense to a charge of unethical conduct.
-Knowing and upholding the procedures, policies, laws and regulations relevant to professional practice regardless of personal views.
